Catherine Haley Epstein: Sorting the Seeds

June 7, 2013 - July 26, 2013

First Friday Reception: June 7th, 6-9pm

“In the myth of sorting the seeds, Aphrodite presents Psyche with a granary of various seeds (millet, corn, beans, etc). Aphrodite then asks her to sort them. Overwhelmed with the task, Psyche weeps in disappointment.

Meanwhile, some ants came to the rescue by swiftly separating out the seeds on her behalf. The sorting is akin to taking stock of priorities and options, of revealing likes and dislikes. It is a critical step of any journey, no matter how mundane or epic.

As any act of sorting makes clear, the works presented at Pushdot will vary in medium and in subject, always coming from the same intention: to clarify what fuels my art practice. Navigating the art world, art history and art in general society can be overwhelming. With doubt as the cornerstone of my studio practice, I am continually compelled to recheck my boundaries, goals, technique and purpose.”

Catherine Haley Epstein is an artist, curator and writer. In her projects the medium matters only as a vehicle for meaning, whether it be the written word, drawings, oil paint, or books.  Titles and objects, placement and intention all have a say in the work. Her projects, artwork and writings can be found at mindmarrow.com and at wordpress.mindmarrow.com.
